Does anyone think we should bring in a veteran back for insurance in case Mallet get’s injured , doesn’t perform , or bolts to the NFL ?
Or do we think Terry Grant is going to be ready and a viable back up and a player to take on a role like Thigpen had as occasional running back , receiver and kick returner.
Would you bring one in and if so which one would you choose ?
Right now the following are available ?
Joffrey Reynolds – Calgary – Age 32
Wes Cates - Sask – Age 32
Fred Reid - WPG - Age 29
Avon Cobourne - HAM - Age 33
My Choice is Reynolds is healthy because of his familiarity with Burris and Cortez ...2knd choice is Reid ,
i think Grant can be a star in this league if he fully recovered and utilized properly .
I'd say bring in Reynolds and let him know he's not fighting for the starting role at least initially that he is looked upon as insurance and a backup for now . Reynolds would know that if he wows them they would change their mind . He also knows Malllet could leave, falter or get injured. If Reynolds impresses then either could be traded as well .
